How to Count 300 Pieced Hexagons
Counting Inklingo hexagon designs may seem like an easy thing.
Wait a minute!
Is this one hexagon or two?
They are exactly the same!
These two Pieced Hexagons have the same shapes in the same position.
Only the placement of the colors is different.
Count: THREE ??
Count: FOUR ??
I thought I knew how to count, but now I wonder.
How do I count thee? Let me count the ways. . . (or Elizabeth Barrett Browning)
Monkey and I have at least 3 more ways to get a “different” hexagon, even without flipping it over to use the mirror image (above).
PLAYING WITH COLOR IN EQ
Of course, Electric Quilt is the perfect tool for playing with a design like this.
We drew this Pieced Hexagon in EQ for you, so you can download it and play.

TIP Since this is not a square quilt block, the info on the EQ notecard is even more important than usual.

This is so neat……
Each week ! Tell myself I’m Getting closer to using Inklingo exclusively…… So many bulky projects to finish up first … they take up so much space….. Inlingo doesn’t ! That is the best part, … I think…
A thin plastic bag or tote will hold a whole weekend/or weeks of piecing fun. No need to tote a machine on a trip, anymore.
Linda, I’m so Looking forward to this as soon as the printer accepts my transferfrom my smart phone…… Bought a new package of Freezer Paper… and am going to iron one or two assortments of coordinating fabrics this next week. So exciting. Hope my computer helper comes over soon.
Then, the new E-Book…… yippe, the full video is so lovely…….. my bed will be all covered with Hexie’s … Geometry was. Always my favorite math unit, personallyand my teaching years…. Just in stitches of excitment, Toni
I’m so excited!! I can’t wait to see all of the Inklingo hexagons!! Linda, you ROCK!!
Very cool. And now an ebook of Inklingo designs! What will Linda think of next? And what would we do without her? I, for one, would be bored silly.
Amazing how different the design looks when the fabric placement is changed. Eagerly looking forward to a pieced hexagon E-book, that will be enormously helpful.
300 pieced hexagon designs coming soon?? Fabulous! So perfect for summer stitching — or stitching any time!
It is such fun to see how different the same pieced hexagon can look depending on fabric placement.
